Eccleston Elementary has the best of everything: leadership, staff, parents, students and community. Because we have the best, we have no choice but to be the best. We provide our students with the necessary tools to succeed in life.

There are several reasons why I love Eccleston Elementary. Some of the reasons why I love Eccleston is because it's a neighborhood where the kids come looking and striving to become all that they can be. Also, the staff are very concerned for the students and their well-being. It's a family environment where kids feel safe and protected. Once students students feel safe, they are ready to learn as much as their little brains can hold.

I love this school because this school is in a all black area and it has mantain an A status for the past two years. The pricinpal and I did not always get along, but for one thing I can truly say is that she loves the children and is always creating functions for the parents and children. As I get to know Ms Ivory and her staff, I have stopped fighting with her and now working with her to make sure I do my part as a parent. When school is fun, the chilldren learn better.

Eccleston Elementary School is an inner city neighborhood school that is a vital part to the community. Our parents struggle to have the financial resources and time to give to the education of their children so we fill in the gap. We have many businesses that have become our partner to supply many of the needs of our families. We have dedicated and loving teachers and staff to help each child that comes to our school. We know that it takes everyone to help our students become successful so we join with the family, community and district to achieve this goal.

I'm a Proud Parent of a Soaring Eagle, and I feel that a school should not be rated just based on it test schools. We have the Best Administration and a staff of Highly Qualified Educators, with a family atmosphere.

Eccleston Elementary School has an amazingly caring and dedicated staff. I offer an after school art club to the students, and I am always amazed by how enthusiastic and helpful the teachers are when I'm there, especially Ms. Cleveland. They are so devoted to the well being of each child, be it educational, emotional or physical. I am positive that this is in no small part due to the perfect leadership of Principal Ruth Haniff. Once you meet Mrs. Haniff you will understand what I mean. She is what every parent wishes their child's Principal could be. She is such a beautiful, caring, intelligent, strong, kind, encouraging, force of nature; that I would follow her anywhere, do anything she asks, and be grateful for the opportunity.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
